In the southern part of Iceland, off the main road and at the end of a short unpaved-road (Sólheimajökulsvegur) you will find the Mýrdalsjökull Glacier.  From the parking lot just a short walk over the Moraine and along a trail, you will see the receding Mýrdalsjökull Glacier patched in black from volcanic eruptions.  Looking for a more exciting way to see it, there are several tour companies which offer glacier trekking.
